The course teaches solving strategic business problems structured around Harvard-type business cases, and the course includes an introductory lecture and five case seminar sessions. The cases are presented and judged in collaboration with established strategy consulting companies: Accenture, August Associates, Bain & Company, Boston Consulting Group, and McKinsey & Company.
Students work in groups of 3-5 members to address the provided case material and to prepare a solution either during the week before the seminar session (sessions 1-4) or during a limited time slot of three hours (session 5). The solution is submitted and presented to a panel of judges including consultants from the partner company of each week, who evaluate the results and the presentation of the group. The presentations typically take place in the premises of the partner companies in the center of Helsinki.
